Homework Help: Series question: find 0.01^0.01

  1. Feb 22, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    By expressing xx as a power of e and using the exponential series, or otherwise, find (without using tables) the value of xx when x=0.01, correct to three places of decimals. (ln10 = 2.30 to two decimal places).

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have tried to playing around with the exponential series and ln 10 = 2.3, but still can't get anything useful... can someone guide me?

    Hi Michael! :smile:
    But you haven't done that …

    you've written exx

    you're being asked to find y, where ey = xx :wink:
